I just got him got him aclumated..(typo) and It looks like some of his arms are short or something He might not be streaching them out just yet. His mantle is 1.5 inches. Can't tell arm length he is just sitting at the bottom in plain sight looking at me.

Have you tested your water? Also do you have an airstone? If so add it to the sump... could be a problem with gas exchange.

I just realized that you got him at 1. Octopuses need an extended time for acclimation 2 to 3 hours long.

His breathing has slowed he seems to be better. Still kinda on his side. He is looking at me though. Looks like some improvement.
